Adding more disks to a storage pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a 3TB RAID 5 array and a single storage pool.  We want to add extra disks into the existing RAID 5 array to increase capacity.  Is it as simple as adding the disks into the RAID 5 array and then DPM will then see the new space in the storage pool?  We do not want to risk losing any of the existing data in the storage pool.

  • Hi,

    Yes, it is that simple.  Sometimes you need to reboot the server before Window will see the new size of the physical disk and report it, but other than that, DPM should see the new free space and be able to use it without doing anything special.
